By Pankaj Jain on Assignment- Cravings

Thats a great blog on leaving unwanted habits. I tried to figure out and introspected on the same. Few that I could note down:

Unwanted Habit 1 : Unnecessary arguments over political ideologies
Cues/ Cravings behind it : TV news/ social media posts/ wats-app conversations
What triggers the habit : Used to respond the moment I see a post/msg from someone to which I don’t agree to and get into a never ending discussion and heated arguments over the same w/o any result obviously to come back again and repeat the arguments and waste – precious time
Ideas to make the cue/
craving invisible : Muted all words that triggered bjp/ congress/ aap/ hindu/ muslim/ modi – Now the profile page/ timeline is absolutely clean and ful lof positive notes/ motivational quotes/ leadership articles/ Planning tools

Unwanted Habit 2: Excess TV / Business news watching
Cues/ Cravings behind it: Get rich quickly, to make quick money!!
What triggers the habit: As TV is mostly on, have a habit of skimming thru the channels, business news, share recommendations, movies, reality tv shows, anything, etc ? :(… Also discussions with colleagues on share-tips!
Ideas to make the cue/
craving invisible: 1) My mother, wife, daughter – all watch tv so I cannot remove the tv from the room, but I can stay away from the room. ?
2) Stopped touching TV remote – this has really helped in reducing TV time
3) Fixed time – won’t watch on laptop, will watch only on TV till 10 am
4) Very limited discussions on money management with friends/ Colleagues
